www.Oneonta On The : New Directory website of Oneonta NY

Guess I should update this site. Rick & I have created and are launching a new directory website of Oneonta, New York, where we have been living for the past 19 years. Rick programmed the site using Ruby On Rails and I helped with the graphic design and am now the promoter.

Please check out our new map directory website: . It will be invaluable to you if you are planning on traveling to the
Oneonta NY area. Perhaps you are planning a visit Memorial Weekend to take part in the 2009 General Clinton Canoe Regatta? Or maybe your child wants to attend one of the many baseball camps i.e. Cooperstown Baseball World or Cooperstown Dreams Park, and visit the Baseball Hall of Fame or Farmer's Museum in Cooperstown, NY (22 miles from Oneonta). Oneonta is home of the National Soccer Hall of Fame and Museum, a nifty place which has hands-on activities for soccer aficionados. Don't forget, we are a college town in the Catskills Leatherstocking Region of upstate NY. SUNY Oneonta and Hartwick College are nestled in our hills.

Hope you will visit our new website soon. We are having an April 15 (2009) Gift Certificate Give Away to two local businesses: Green Toad Bookstore and Elena's. So if you are planning to visit Oneonta, NY in the near future, your visit may be even sweeter!

Thanks for listening,
Mary Robinson

Adobe Illustrator Poster - Furniture Styles

Hope you enjoy this despite the obvious carpet/chair flaw, which I've been trying to correct. I love Adobe Illustrator.
I almost forgot to ask ... the question of the day for theater goers: from where does the idea "Six Chairs in Search of a Table" come.

Why did Jesus curse the fig tree? (see comments for discussion)

Today I ran across my daughter's blog, which seemed to have the other side of the story. Well, at least she has a sense of humor ... Here's what she wrote:

About me:
I started violin lessons when I was 5 and a half. I learned the suzuki method, where you play twinkle a million different ways, while walking around or spinning or other ridiculous things. I didn't want to learn how to read music but my mom insisted so she got me a different teacher just for that. His name was Robert and his house was kind of dark and gross. I still didn't learn to read music, so my mom started covering the finger numbers in my books with white-out. I started making her "practice with me" by playing the keyboard with me. I played every note a second after she did. She caught on. She made me learn to read music. I screamed and cried like it was oral surgery. My mom started putting MnM's on my music stand for every 10 min. I practiced correctly. I started refusing to play for anything but chocolate. As I grew older I could demand bigger treats. On violin lesson days, I was often taken out of school for lunch at the chinese restaurant before I was made to go to the lesson. After every recital I was awarded french fries and cheescake at the local diner, no matter what. To this day I wonder if it was my love of music, or my passion for junk food that kept me going for about 13 years...

Should I leave her a message inviting her to Chinese lunch if she opens her case?
